Just go here! Awesome food and service, order the Neptune Platter well worth the price and make sure to wear your stretchy pants! Perfect location but the center of town, look for the Maroon awning.

What a great place to enjoy a pleasant meal..The bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese in a pineapple sauce is delicious and the flounder was excellent along with the margarita..Great service by Jose Luis made the meal more enjoyable.

Thirteen of us were in town looking for a great place to eat. And man did we find it. Just a half block off the beach Blue Marlin is the place to go. We were warmly welcomed by Jose and the rest of the staff....More

Came here expecting amazing seafood, left with disappointment. The food is mediocre and would be considered expensive for what you get. We had the flounder supremo and chipotle shrimp. Unfortunately even the taco stands had better food for the price point.

We did not make a reservation, we were just walking by and saw the sign and read the menu. An English-speaking waiter came to greet us so we entered. The margaritas were excellent.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
